Thanks for the standard interview.
Prepare yourself before the interview, such as have a nice sleep, enough breakfast or lunch, as sometimes you do not know if the person who asked you to come, sometimes is quite busy and you will start the interview one, two or even 3 hours afterwards.
Be calm and relax, during the interview.
It is a good idea to seek information about the company, the management, the culture, vision - mision and company's future objectives. Asking from the company employees prior to the interview day would be a benefit as a your tools.
